Summary

Python 2.5.2 and earlier allows context-dependent attackers to execute arbitrary code via multiple vectors that cause a negative size value to be provided to the PyString_FromStringAndSize function, which allocates less memory than expected when assert() is disabled and triggers a buffer overflow.

Common Attack Pattern Enumeration and Classification (CAPEC)

  • Buffer Overflow via Environment Variables
    This attack pattern involves causing a buffer overflow through manipulation of environment variables. Once the attacker finds that they can modify an environment variable, they may try to overflow associated buffers. This attack leverages implicit trust often placed in environment variables.
  • Overflow Buffers
    Buffer Overflow attacks target improper or missing bounds checking on buffer operations, typically triggered by input injected by an attacker. As a consequence, an attacker is able to write past the boundaries of allocated buffer regions in memory, causing a program crash or potentially redirection of execution as per the attackers' choice.
  • Client-side Injection-induced Buffer Overflow
    This type of attack exploits a buffer overflow vulnerability in targeted client software through injection of malicious content from a custom-built hostile service.
  • Filter Failure through Buffer Overflow
    In this attack, the idea is to cause an active filter to fail by causing an oversized transaction. An attacker may try to feed overly long input strings to the program in an attempt to overwhelm the filter (by causing a buffer overflow) and hoping that the filter does not fail securely (i.e. the user input is let into the system unfiltered).
  • MIME Conversion
    An attacker exploits a weakness in the MIME conversion routine to cause a buffer overflow and gain control over the mail server machine. The MIME system is designed to allow various different information formats to be interpreted and sent via e-mail. Attack points exist when data are converted to MIME compatible format and back.

    This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the
    Red Hat Security Response Team.
    
    Python is an interpreted, interactive, object-oriented programming
    language.
    
    When the assert() system call was disabled, an input sanitization flaw
    was revealed in the Python string object implementation that led to a
    buffer overflow. The missing check for negative size values meant the
    Python memory allocator could allocate less memory than expected. This
    could result in arbitrary code execution with the Python interpreter's
    privileges. (CVE-2008-1887)
    
    Multiple buffer and integer overflow flaws were found in the Python
    Unicode string processing and in the Python Unicode and string object
    implementations. An attacker could use these flaws to cause a denial
    of service (Python application crash). (CVE-2008-3142, CVE-2008-5031)
    
    Multiple integer overflow flaws were found in the Python imageop
    module. If a Python application used the imageop module to process
    untrusted images, it could cause the application to disclose sensitive
    information, crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the
    Python interpreter's privileges. (CVE-2007-4965, CVE-2008-4864)
    
    Multiple integer underflow and overflow flaws were found in the Python
    snprintf() wrapper implementation. An attacker could use these flaws
    to cause a denial of service (memory corruption). (CVE-2008-3144)
    
    Multiple integer overflow flaws were found in various Python modules.
    An attacker could use these flaws to cause a denial of service (Python
    application crash). (CVE-2008-2315, CVE-2008-3143)
    
    An integer signedness error, leading to a buffer overflow, was found
    in the Python zlib extension module. If a Python application requested
    the negative byte count be flushed for a decompression stream, it
    could cause the application to crash or, potentially, execute
    arbitrary code with the Python interpreter's privileges.
    (CVE-2008-1721)
    
    A flaw was discovered in the strxfrm() function of the Python locale
    module. Strings generated by this function were not properly
    NULL-terminated, which could possibly cause disclosure of data stored
    in the memory of a Python application using this function.
    (CVE-2007-2052)
    
    Red Hat would like to thank David Remahl of the Apple Product Security
    team for responsibly reporting the CVE-2008-2315 issue.
    
    All Python users should upgrade to these updated packages, which
    contain backported patches to correct these issues."

    This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the

    Python is an interpreted, interactive, object-oriented programming
    language.
    
    When the assert() system call was disabled, an input sanitization flaw
    was revealed in the Python string object implementation that led to a
    buffer overflow. The missing check for negative size values meant the
    Python memory allocator could allocate less memory than expected. This
    could result in arbitrary code execution with the Python interpreter's
    privileges. (CVE-2008-1887)
    
    Multiple buffer and integer overflow flaws were found in the Python
    Unicode string processing and in the Python Unicode and string object
    implementations. An attacker could use these flaws to cause a denial
    of service (Python application crash). (CVE-2008-3142, CVE-2008-5031)
    
    Multiple integer overflow flaws were found in the Python imageop
    module. If a Python application used the imageop module to process
    untrusted images, it could cause the application to disclose sensitive
    information, crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the
    Python interpreter's privileges. (CVE-2007-4965, CVE-2008-4864)
    
    Multiple integer underflow and overflow flaws were found in the Python
    snprintf() wrapper implementation. An attacker could use these flaws
    to cause a denial of service (memory corruption). (CVE-2008-3144)
    
    Multiple integer overflow flaws were found in various Python modules.
    An attacker could use these flaws to cause a denial of service (Python
    application crash). (CVE-2008-2315, CVE-2008-3143)
    
    An integer signedness error, leading to a buffer overflow, was found
    in the Python zlib extension module. If a Python application requested
    the negative byte count be flushed for a decompression stream, it
    could cause the application to crash or, potentially, execute
    arbitrary code with the Python interpreter's privileges.
    (CVE-2008-1721)
    
    A flaw was discovered in the strxfrm() function of the Python locale
    module. Strings generated by this function were not properly
    NULL-terminated, which could possibly cause disclosure of data stored
    in the memory of a Python application using this function.
    (CVE-2007-2052)
    
    Red Hat would like to thank David Remahl of the Apple Product Security
    team for responsibly reporting the CVE-2008-2315 issue.
    
    All Python users should upgrade to these updated packages, which
    contain backported patches to correct these issues."

    Updated python packages that fix multiple security issues are now
    available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
    
    This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the
    Red Hat Security Response Team.
    
    Python is an interpreted, interactive, object-oriented programming
    language.
    
    When the assert() system call was disabled, an input sanitization flaw
    was revealed in the Python string object implementation that led to a
    buffer overflow. The missing check for negative size values meant the
    Python memory allocator could allocate less memory than expected. This
    could result in arbitrary code execution with the Python interpreter's
    privileges. (CVE-2008-1887)
    
    Multiple buffer and integer overflow flaws were found in the Python
    Unicode string processing and in the Python Unicode and string object
    implementations. An attacker could use these flaws to cause a denial
    of service (Python application crash). (CVE-2008-3142, CVE-2008-5031)
    
    Multiple integer overflow flaws were found in the Python imageop
    module. If a Python application used the imageop module to process
    untrusted images, it could cause the application to disclose sensitive
    information, crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the
    Python interpreter's privileges. (CVE-2007-4965, CVE-2008-4864)
    
    Multiple integer underflow and overflow flaws were found in the Python
    snprintf() wrapper implementation. An attacker could use these flaws
    to cause a denial of service (memory corruption). (CVE-2008-3144)
    
    Multiple integer overflow flaws were found in various Python modules.
    An attacker could use these flaws to cause a denial of service (Python
    application crash). (CVE-2008-2315, CVE-2008-3143)
    
    An integer signedness error, leading to a buffer overflow, was found
    in the Python zlib extension module. If a Python application requested
    the negative byte count be flushed for a decompression stream, it
    could cause the application to crash or, potentially, execute
    arbitrary code with the Python interpreter's privileges.
    (CVE-2008-1721)
    
    A flaw was discovered in the strxfrm() function of the Python locale
    module. Strings generated by this function were not properly
    NULL-terminated, which could possibly cause disclosure of data stored
    in the memory of a Python application using this function.
    (CVE-2007-2052)
    
    Red Hat would like to thank David Remahl of the Apple Product Security
    team for responsibly reporting the CVE-2008-2315 issue.
    
    All Python users should upgrade to these updated packages, which
    contain backported patches to correct these issues."

    descriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200807-01 (Python: Multiple integer overflows) Multiple vulnerabilities were discovered in Python: David Remahl reported multiple integer overflows in the file imageop.c, leading to a heap-based buffer overflow (CVE-2008-1679). This issue is due to an incomplete fix for CVE-2007-4965. Justin Ferguson discovered that an integer signedness error in the zlib extension module might trigger insufficient memory allocation and a buffer overflow via a negative signed integer (CVE-2008-1721). Justin Ferguson discovered that insufficient input validation in the PyString_FromStringAndSize() function might lead to a buffer overflow (CVE-2008-1887). Impact : A remote attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities to cause a Denial of Service or possibly the remote execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Python. Workaround : There is no known workaround at this time.
